I grew up with Metallica serving as a symbol for San Francisco. I knew James Hetfield was born there, like I was. And almost 20 years ago I went to the taping of their live album with the San Francisco symphony. My entry point to their music was definitely the Black album, but that opened up their entire catalogue to me. Angry. Orchestral. Haunting at times. Their music transcended boundaries of genre.
Even if you don’t care for metal or modern hard-rock, this video is for you. Enjoy.
Just wait for Kirk to nail that melodica solo. The best.
